I have a 06 rav 4 diesel 2.2 D4D and I amtrying to save

This answer was rated:

I have a 06 rav 4 diesel 2.2 D4D and I amtrying to save some money by doing my own oil and filter change. I am a novice but the videos on YouTube make it look easy. Before I start I wanted a second opinion. In particular I am a little unclear about the filter. The recommended filters come with gaskets but without a casing. I presume I used the old casing with the new filter and gasket?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hello and Welcome.. My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise. Yes - on this engine, you remove the casing -as you will have seen on the videos.. and take the old paper element filter out.. Remove the rubber seals you will see and discard them with the old filter.. You do indeed re use the "old" canister - put the new filter in there - fit the new seals in place exactly of the old and then re fasten the whole thing to the engine.. Its not a hard one you will be fine ;)Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..~>>~~>>~ Meanwhile now - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time..
